The trail is terrible compared to the National Park Trails. I found it hard to get a rhythm going until the final switchbacks. I think that was because I was over anxious to see if my car was chewed up by bear.- I should add that you should be careful on the trail leaving Reds Meadow. The signage leaves something to be desired.- Additional note. My buddy had the JMT App for his iPhone. Greatest trail app of all time. Showed us where we were on a Tom Harrison Map. Never Failed and we used it all the time.On Wed, Aug 1, 2012 at 4:21 PM, Ray Rippel <ray.rippel@...> wrote:"- DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE DOWNHILL FROM WHITNEY. I Highly recommend and early start!"Very good advice. I camped the night before at Guitar Lake, and was out of the tent at 3:00 a.m., on the trail a little after 4, and at the summit at 8:38. I spent about an hour up there, and got to WP a little after 4 p.m. The only thing I remember about the descent is that it was hot, dry and I thought it would never end.
